Regents University International Partners Conference

Grow Movement had the honour of being invited to talk at Regents University's International Partners Conference in January with a panel of guests from IBM,  LinkedIn and Career Volunteer. The panel focused on the value of an 'International Education for Employers'. IBM spoke about the importance of cross cultural communication within the work place and how an international education enables this. Linkedin spoke about the need to ensure that this is reflected on linked in profiles so that employers can see this.

Both Career Volunteer and Grow Movement spoke about the benefits of volunteering to build a professional skills base which is attractive to employers. Volunteering with Grow Movement improves cross cultural communication, coaching, and cross technology communication. Essential skills within the work force today. Grow Movement has had 5 volunteers from Regents Alumni work with micro entrepreneurs across Uganda and Malawi.
